In my second trip to Dublin, I finally found a microbrew, the home of the only real Irish beer left...
A - this place is beautifully decorated and appointed with copper and brass abounding. What better way to decorate a beer bar (with some great foor offerings as well) than to cover the walls with glass front shelves of beer of the world. I have never seen anything like it.
The place is absolutely huge, but by making it four floors, they really have captured a way to bring in 500 people, and make each area it's own little spot. My favorite place is on the fourth floor, seated around a copper, non-used brew kettle replica looking out over the street.
Servoce is European/Irish - friendly as hell, but different than what you get in the states. No expansion necessary.
Selection is great with their own offerings. I did just miss the spring releae of the Celebration Stout (bummer) but was there for the Chocolate Truffle Stout. Best stout I have ever raised to my lips.
Wife and I ate there once, and the seafood was great, I highly recommedn the mussells (yes, I know they are hard to mess up, but these were great.)
hey have regular amazing music acts I got video f as well, and spent mostly every night, after touring the city, right back there. it was home away from home for us. A microbrewer where everyone is friendly, and maybe everyone doesn't know your name, but you don't feel like an outsider. A MUST SEE.

Four stories of seating, live music, impressive collection of bottles on show all over the place. Nice place to go out. I went with a large group and our orders were all correct and quickly filled. I ordered wings to share with a buddy and they were great quality. On to the more important stuff; the beer high quality and abundant. Their Oyster stout is fantastic and a prime representation of the Irish Dry Stout. If you aren't in the mood to try something new, they've got a bottle list longer than any I've seen in Ireland with stuff from the States and all over Europe. Not bad pricing either. I would highly recommend stopping in here to anyone in Dublin.

We visited here in April 2012 while on a tour of UKoGBaNI and Ireland. After a long ferry ride we dragged the kids to Porterhouse to have a few beers. It was kid-friendlier than most places we visited, and had no problem accommodating the wee ones.
Good beer. I had a sampler and tried most everything. We had standard pub food, which was standard. If you're a tourist visiting the area with family, I'd recommend this. If you're looking for a local experience, look elsewhere.

A great craft beer local in Dublin, and one of the best. A great range of brews from unique IPAs to stouts!
A-Great Irish theme, excellent Irish enviroment, and craft bar essence in the tourist district of Temple Bar. I went during the Olympics and Irish
Q-BEST BEERS IN IRELAND! Freak'n excellent!
S-Top notch! Very knowledgeable, provide great insight and recommendations into brews.
S-Numerous ales, lagers, & stouts on tap. Ask for a bottle of their barrel-aged imperial stout - best thing an Irish brewer has ever done; they do not advertise!
F-Food is excellent! Try the Irish cuisine!
V-Prices on the Slightly on the high side due to location in the tourist district!
Better than the overrated Temple Bar and a Guiness!
